Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Vince Marotta of Arizona Sports,
I’ve lived in the Valley since 1979 and became involved in this city’s sports media in 1996 - the same year the Coyotes got to town - and this was the first time I can remember a perfect stranger engaging me in a conversation about the Phoenix Coyotes.
It’s starting to feel like Phoenix is becoming real hockey town….
For the first time, both rabid fans and casual latecomers are expecting big things instead of just hoping that the Coyotes get into the playoffs or win a series.
The way this team is playing right now could very well end in guys like Shane Doan, Mike Smith and Radim Vrbata hoisting Lord Stanley’s Cup in June.
But even if that doesn’t happen, eager Phoenix bandwagon jumpers have been given their first opportunity to taste Coyotes’ success.
